Here is a toy stuffed owl that I made for my dear granddaughter.  Thanks much to Susan Beal for the pattern, which appears in her book Button It Up.  You can find this at 

Also, the beautiful fabric I used came from

He (she?) is properly titled Big-eyed Owl Button Toy.  I made just a couple alterations to Susan's pattern.  I used fabric instead of

felt, and I appliqued on the eyes and beak, instead of using buttons, since DGD is only a baby, after all.  And none of likes baby swallowing a button, do we!!!

It all went together easily and quickly.  Now I want to make some more, maybe using some of that lovely-feeling (but not so lovely to sew with!) minky fabric.


  1. Love this little guy! Thanks for bring the fabric to life in such a cute way. :)

  2. Thanks, Harmony! And thanks for the great fabric. (Just used some more of the green today!)
